They should clear the head of the tallest family member and not obstruct views, about 36 to 48 inches from the top of the counter as a rule of thumb.

wondering where best to hang my 3 pendants? - my raised bar top is 13.5" x 51" x 42"ht; work area is 25.5" x 51" x 36"ht. 8 ft ceiling ht. could you advise me where the landmark for the center of my 3-mini pendant (36" long) fixture should be? it looks to me t hat your pendants hang just past the past the raised portion and to the rear of the work area... is this correct? thank you. ps- i love this cute, airy design!

Thanks for your interest in the design. The pendants should clear the head of the tallest family member and not obstruct views—figure 36 to 48 inches from the top of the counter. Start the row of lights 12 to 15 inches from either end of the island or table, and space them evenly within that span. Hope this helps.

My cabinet rep said that they use steel "L" shaped brackets that go down and connect to the back side of the base cabinets. I haven't seen it, but that's how it was described to me.

A raised snack bar like this one is usually 42" to the top (with 30"h stools). Extending the standard 36"h island counter is also a great option. (but be sure to get 24"h stools)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Ample windows open up the kitchen, which Crisp relocated from its original spot. Custom cabinets, granite counters and a farmhouse sink join a pair of dishwashers and a Sub-Zero refrigerator.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Current Events for Traditional Kitchens
3. Add pendant lights. If your country-style kitchen isn’t properly lit, now is the time to fix it; pendant lights will make it appear that much more modern. Install them over work areas, such as countertops or the island, to improve your space aesthetically and functionally.
